I thought I’d share an interesting update from an experience at my local CVS. Not only have they received a memo, but now they are issuing memos to customers. That’s right, take a look at the memo in the picture below greeting guests at the gift card center.
It states the following:
- Maximum gift card purchase is $1,000 per day
- Maximum money order is $2,500 per day
- Maximum money gram is $2,000 per day
Now this is not totally bad news for folks looking to pick up some VR cards to load onto a Bluebird® by American Express card, it does change things a little. Customers used to be able to purchase up to $1,000 per transaction with little hassle but with the latest memo that has changed.
When I took two VR cards to the counter and asked to load them with $500 each, the clerk said “that will prompt me to scan your ID” to which my reply was I’ll take just one. I inquired what was the reason for the change and she stated that it helps them track money laundering.
CVS allows VR cards up to $1,000 per transaction but will likely require an ID to be scanned into their system.
